HOUSTON – Bacco Wine Lounge may be on the cutting edge on a rolling trend.
Its new location will be on the banks of Brays Bayou and accessible to the cyclists on the Brays Bayou Greenway Trail.
So it will be possible to ride your bike on the bayou trail and stop off for a glass of Cabernet at sunset – no car required.
The new Bacco Wine Lounge is located at the corner of 4005 N. Braeswood Blvd. at Stella Link in a freestanding 1,240-SF building.
The landlord, HHF Properties, was represented in the lease transaction by Liam Robinson of Davis Commercial. Bacco opened its first location about two years ago at 5010 Dincans Street in West University Place, and features a laid back, rustic atmosphere serving a selection of wines, spirits, and small plates.
Restaurants and bars that address Houston’s bayous and bike trails are somewhat of a rarity. But the trail development trend may be catching on.
The Urban Land Institute recently published “Active Transportation and Real Estate: The Next Frontier” – a major study on the trend, which spawned what ULI calls “trail-oriented development.”
“At its core, the bicycle boom is about people choosing a lifestyle that gives them more options and requires less dependence on motor vehicles,” the ULI report says.
“Through supporting bike infrastructure, real estate professionals can play a significant role in creating healthier, more sustainable communities. They can also help position their projects and communities in a marketplace that increasingly values active transportation.”
The ULI report detailed case studies of bicycle-oriented and trail projects.
Ten real estate developments projects are profiled: Bici Flats, a multifamily development in Des Moines, Iowa; Circa (multifamily) in Indianapolis; Flats at Bethesda Avenue (mixed-use), Bethesda, Maryland; Gotham West (mixed-use), New York City; Hassalo on Eighth (mixed-use), Portland, Oregon; MoZaic (mixed-use), Minneapolis; Ponce City Market (mixed-use), Atlanta; Silver Moon Lodge (mixed-use), Albuquerque, New Mexico; 250 City Road (mixed-use), London; and Westwood Residences (multifamily) in Singapore.
